It is open with a medium dark rich tone. The Gold plated bell is more focused and to me offers a warmer sound. The bells screw on to the gold plated body of the trumpet and is easy to change and requires a smaller profile case. The valves have a nice feel and are quick and smooth, all slides are free and functional. The trumpet is around 18 years old and has minor cosmetic blemishes which include small areas of missing plating, surface scratches.
A few small indentations and normal wear. There are no large dents or concerns and most of the plating is intact and nice. Included is the original case which is structurally sound in that it holds the trumpet nicely but the inside music compartment covering is not intact and will need gluing back.
